Brief Biography and Research Focus Area:
My name is Ian Preston and I am currently (in 2014) a second year Masters of Commerce (Management Department) student working in the Institute for Water Research. I studied a Bachelor of Commerce (Management Sciences) at Stellenbosch University, before moving to the University of Cape Town to study a Postgraduate diploma in Management (Entrepreneurship).

The focus of my current research is on the decision-making during the planning and construction of water supply developments (mainly dams) around South Africa. Outside of academics I enjoy
playing squash, mountain biking, hiking and reading.
